100 days. Can you believe it? We know it sounds like a lot of time, but to us, we only have 100 days to:

- complete Planet Snoopy
- build a half-pipe and a stage for All Wheels Extreme
- finish the interior renovation of Sandcastle Suites
- hire and train thousands of employees
- prepare summer advertising
- “unwrap” and clean each building in the park
- complete winter overhaul on the coaster and ride cars
- test and run each ride
- clean the midways
- plant flowers, trees and shrubs
- place our “world famous” garbage cans throughout the park
- construct new set pieces for Snoopy’s Big Bow Wow on Ice
- hold auditions for our Live Entertainment Department
- schedule large groups for catered meals
- write ride instruction manuals
- order enough food and drink to feed over 3 million people
- inventory and stock gift shops, game stands and photo booths
- install and network a new ticketing system

And that’s just a partial list! Before we all know it, May 10th will be knocking on all of our doors.


New blog entry, I cracked up when I read the highlighted part...T&T know what's up!!! :lolr:

Well, darn! I was really hoping that Intamin AG would pick up on Wes' idea and develop the OhioDome in case of drizzle or incontinent birds.
Now, if it rains or spits, I will have to theaten to flash everyone to keep the place open The Peanuts thing looks nice, though. Should be a great add-on and adjacent to the pointy thing, too.

Side note: The trashcan thing is hilarious. I did notice that by bold-fonting the trash thing, it makes it look like it's more important than ride instruction manuals or food for the park. Funny :)
HeadOn! Apply Directly to when you just don''t feel fresh. Side effects may include drowsiness, explosive belching, cosplay, and death. Use only when directed and when you have an outbreak, have a Coke and a smile!

Donkeys are my way of life!

Wow...they are building Valleyfair's old Skryscraper. That gets me mad. They could of at least tried and built somthing more modern and unique, seriously these Skyscraper things are out of date now.

Good Going Cedar Fair.

I Love Donkeys!

I've never been on one but they look thrilling. I'll have to check it out this season.

I've never ridden one, so I'm actually pretty excited to do so.

While I don't think they're outdated, they are a few other things... such as really REALLY freaking scary. While I've never been on one, this and slingshots are two of the rides that really scare me. I will need to see it in action to see if I will ride it.

Also, anyone else that HAS been on one, how dizzying is the experience? Just curious if it's going to make me sick or not :Pr .

When I was at Virginia Beach they had one, but I didn't ride it. It looked pretty frightening, though.

I mean don't get me wrong they are thrilling, but they are not worth the upcharge price.
